Overview

Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery, AL is a favorite destination for music fans. He is a treasure to the City of Montgomery and the State of Alabama, and we are paying tribute to the life and accomplishments of this magnificent legend whose name survives in a way that is unique in the history of Music. It is amazing after so many years that there are still things to be said...song to be sung. Year by year since Hank's death in 1953, the real impact his songs made on American Music becomes more evident. His lifelong fans continue, and new admirers are added with each generation. Hank Williams crowded a lot of living into twenty-nine years. It is safe to say, perhaps Hank Williams said all he had to say. We are proud to say that all of the artifacts are authentic. Exhibits include the 1952 Cadillac in which he died, 17 stage suits including Nudie , custom made boots, cowboy hats, tie collection, furniture, portraits, records, horse saddle, piano,awards, rare photos, family history and personal film footage. Experience the history of the first country music superstar and see how Hank Williams transformed country music and sowed the seeds of what was to become American Music, blues, rockabilly and even rock and roll.

There are some interesting items in this museum, like the car he was riding in when he died. It’s an older museum so it’s not interactive and requires too much reading!

Thank you for visiting! Hank Williams Is so much a part of American history so you don’t have to be a fan to take a tour but if you are then it’s a trip down memory lane.

Ty for your review. Glad you had free time and learned about the man Hank Williams. We do not charge for pictures with the Cadillac. It's an added perk when you join the lifetime membership at the Hank Williams Museum.
